The Boston Celtics made a few minor roster moves on Monday. First they waived Luka Šamanić. He’s expected to sign with the Maine Celtics in the G-League.
Filling Luka’s spot is local guy A.J. Reeves, who should be joining Šamanić in Maine after camp per Basketball Insiders’ Adam Zagoria.
Former Providence College standout A.J. Reeves signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the C’s on Monday, per Forbes’ Adam Zagoria. The Athletic’s Jared Weiss reports Boston waived Luka Samanic as a corresponding move, and the big man is expected to join the Maine Celtics of the G League.
Reeves, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard, went undrafted in 2022. The Roxbury, Mass. native averaged 9.9 points and 2.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game last season with the Friars while shooting 36.9 percent from the floor.
The Celtics will have to shore up their roster with at least 14 players (maximum of 15) at the end of training the preseason. They have several candidates to make the team, but don’t rule out a player being released from another team’s roster and picked up by Boston.
Boston opens the regular season against the Sixers on October 18th.
